Facilitation is about taking the best out of people. Meetings are more collaborative, effective, and pleasant. Bigger and better ideas come with more comfort. Time is used to the fullest. You will learn how to leverage the strength of effective facilitation and collaborate more efficiently and prosperously.
One of the most remarkable sets of skills for leaders are facilitation skills. These are the “process” abilities we use to guide and direct essential parts of our coordination work with people such as meetings, outlining sessions, and training of leaders.
Facilitation is a term used to represent a role of the teacher. Facilitation is providing the needed resources, information, and support in order for learners to achieve a task, rather than teaching.
Facilitation can play an essential role in ensuring a well-run conference or engagement process. Useful facilitation skills include preparation agendas, creating the relevant group environment, encouraging assistance, and leading the group to attain its objectives.
Roles Of A Facilitator:
- Design and shape the group process, and pick the tools that best help the organization progress towards that outcome.
- Ensure that outcomes, actions and questions are correctly recorded and actioned, and properly dealt with afterwards.
Key characteristics of a facilitator are:
- Experience of and skill in participatory facilitation techniques
- Understanding of group dynamics
- Love of the work
A good facilitator uses “active listening” whereby they may repeat, or respond immediately to what a speaker announced to confirm the group correctly understood the speaker’s meaning. This is very crucial especially if the speaker was unclear or the group becomes irritable.
As a facilitator, you need to support a tone for the actions and attitudes of the session. Think about these guidelines yourself or you can ask the group what actions and attitudes will help them get the most maximum out of the experience. Try to push for strong ideas and precise guidelines.
Top Skills To Facilitate:
- Produce a good agenda.
- Be aware of both content and style.
- Keep the group moving towards its aims.
- Use a diversity of facilitation tools to keep everyone interested.
- Create a safe and empowering environment to get the best contribution from everyone.
Traditionally, teachers are the ones with experience and expertise in a particular field. They reveal that knowledge through a diversity of means to their students. Facilitators build on the database of the group of students to find the solutions to questions.
Tips Facilitators Can Follow:
- The participants have 80-90% of wisdom.
- Provide a vast agenda.
- Let them choose their journey.
- Give them time to reflect.
- Give them time to practice.
- Let them experience what you want them to learn.
Here are steps you can follow when starting a session:
- Plan ahead. A facilitator should strive as much as possible in meeting arrangements and agenda planning.
- Meet with group members.
- Plan a site visit.
- Be well rested.
- Arrive early.
- Prepare opening activities.
- Identify ground rules.
A facilitator is a person who attends a group of people realize their common purposes and supports them to plan to achieve them without taking a unique position in the discussion.
Some words for facilitators are; moderator, discussant, enabler, ombudsman, co-facilitator, coordinator, facilitating, and presenter.
The facilitating leader is precisely that: an effective facilitator, a person who directs or organizes the efforts of a group. The facilitating leader uses group facilitation skills to help teams and individuals resolve problems. Think of a facilitating manager as a guru who helps others move through a process together.
Definition of facilitation is the act of facilitating: the state of being facilitated. It is the lowering of the entrance for reflex conduction along a distinct neural pathway, especially from repeated use of that pathway.
The facilitator’s job is to encourage everyone to do their best thinking. They create a situation where everyone is encouraged to participate, understand one another’s point of viewpoint, and share responsibility. In doing so, a group facilitator helps members look for solutions and build sustainable satisfaction.
